Moa Brewing Company struck Irish gold with the biggest medal haul of any brewery worldwide at the Dublin Craft Beer Cup held over the weekend.

“We’re also chuffed to have some other New Zealand breweries sharing in the spoils with Schippers Brewing Company picking up three silvers and a bronze, as well as our good friends down the road, Renaissance, picking up a silver,” added Moa Founder, Josh Scott.

Danish brewery Coisbo Beer claimed the highly coveted trophy for best beer with their Russian Imperial Stout.
